I'm still having a pretty severe skin reaction to Suboxone. I have talked about this with my Dr and he doesn't want to prescribe Subutex. I have been calling around doctors in Manhattan but none of them want anything to do with Subutex. I have tried to explain to them that I've been on Suboxone for about 8 months with all clean drug screens that I can provide them results of, but it doesn't seem that is the problem, the problem is they all have no idea what Subutex really even is. They all say Suboxone is the new subutex and that subutex is rarely ever used. No one seems to give a sh*t that I am having a allergic reaction to Suboxone, and if they do, they think don't really care about it since "im a junkie". It's really a crappy situation.

I'm so sorry to hear that! I have to ask you, first, if you are spitting out the saliva from your dose instead of swallowing it. That is crucially important to keep from naloxone entering your body. It does not get absorbed in your mouth, but in your digestive system. Meanwhile the buprenorphine is absorbed through the membranes in your mouth. Once your strip or pill has dissolved fully, go ahead and spit out the remaining saliva. If you are having a skin reaction, this step should eliminate the problem.

I'm sorry that I don't know NYC prescribers who would give you subutex instead of suboxone. The DEA gives doctors who prescribe subutex a hard time unless his patient is pregnant. Smh.

I hope that this suggestion helps you!

Amy
